    Thanks for posting anyway … what a great house – a time capsule.

    Very true to the period but a bit formally severe and restrained for my tastes. Having over 4,200 sq. feet of house on 5 acres is also a plus. It certainly has the “Classic” look. I’d like to see what someone with a real passion for the Greek Revival Antebellum period could do with this house.

    With its upright/chunky proportions and emphasis on facade with the heavy entablature and two-story portico, it has a distinctive Tennessee/Kentucky look to it.

    If only for the main hall with the apsidal stair, this house is well worth owning.

    The Greek Revival two-panel doors and moulded surrounds and the recess-paneled jambs and trim are fine; it’s the severe chimneypieces that disappoint, but I expect they originally had marbelized paint treatments which would have elevated them considerably.

    The peculiar little attic story in the rear wing is unusual, though not so much attractive or of much modern use.

    This house has been on the market (or was on the market) for a long time, I have stared at the pictures of it and decorated it in my mind for months! The East Tennessee Preservation Alliance held an open house there not too long ago, so hopefully someone with restoration in mind will buy it. If someone puts pot lights or a “modern” kitchen in there, I will die!!

    I knew this a house looked familiar. Kelly remember when Dad and I first started looking at houses up here in 2008? We saw this and I wanted it so badly but was too much work for us. Back then it was listed at $30,000. Not much real work has been done here to make the price so high. I wanted it for myself restored but UN-restored I felt it was a steal and I called to be sure there was no mistake in the price. But we needed a home we could move into right away. Oh well…..

      You mean I could have been the daughter of the owners of this house?! Oh well, yeah would have been a lot of work but what a deal someone got back then.
